Mordor had a dreadful story that was was poorly strung together and made little sense. Outstanding Achievement my ass haha.
Yeah, I was caught off guard by that one, too. I know of NOBODY that felt that story was anything more than serviceable. Yes, fine, opinions may vary, blah blag and so forth.
Destiny as Action Game of the Year also caught me off guard. Even Wolfenstein: The New Order was, to me, a vastly superior offering; and not even I would claim that it was perfect. Great, yes. Perfect, no.
Wolfenstein might have been the biggest surprise of the year for me. I was expecting shit. I got a surprisingly compelling story and a fun shoot em up game.
Let's put it this way. I got it on steam sale for something stupid like 9 dollars. Not only did I feel I got my money's worth, I felt that I could have spent 30 or 40 dollars and felt like I got my money's worth.
I bought Wolf (aka Roomba Simulator 2014) based on recommendations here - mainly from nin - and enjoyed it a lot. My expectations had been lifted as its reputation grew but it did not disappoint.
